The Michigan Wolverines landed a commitment from a graduate transfer. Defensive end Mike Danna won't be traveling too far as he heads from Central Michigan to Michigan.

Danna was in the transfer portal for less than a month before announcing his plans to take his talents to Ann Arbor. The defensive end visited the Wolverines earlier this month before making the move.

After graduating from Central Michigan, Danna is immediately eligible to make his mark on the Wolverines this season. He made his announcement on Twitter.

"Here I come. Truly a blessing. GoBlue," Danna said on Twitter.

Danna had a highly productive season with the Chippewas in 2018, racking up 65 tackles, 14 tackles for a loss, 8.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and two touchdowns.

The Wolverines and Chippewas have traded players and coaches over the past few years - those most transfer from Michigan to Central Michigan.

Former Florida head coach Jim McElwain was an assistant for the Wolverines last year before landing the head coaching job at Central Michigan.

Danna will join his former high school teammate, running back Tru Wilson, at Michigan. The Wolverines have produced top-10 defensive units every year under Jim Harbaugh and look to continue their dominance next season.
